TWiT’s Leo Laporte loses faith in social media – I’ve been a fan of Leo’s for a long time and I was interested to hear that he had finally given up on Google Buzz. But to hear that he is giving up on the majority of his social efforts is a bit of a surprise. It looks like you might only be able to find Leo on his blog.
If I can offer any advice, don’t give up on social media just yet. Good things are happening. But there is a lesson to be learned. Leo’s emphasis on his blog is one to take to heart. Regardless of your social efforts, you need a home. I would lean toward a blog, but even a website will do (just remember to keep it updated).

Content Is Not King – I ran into a true gem this week when I discovered a fantastic blog. It is run by Marjorie Clayman and it one of the best blogs that I have read in a long time. Her ideas and content are fresh and worth reading. In a recent post, she bucked one of the more important precepts of blogging – content being the king of blogging. In her opinion, this has gone its path. Marjorie defined it this way – ideas are king. I look forward to seeing where she goes with this awesome idea.
